Having successfully recruited to several Primary Care Network (PCN) areas, we are now seeking to appoint one full time Clinical/Managerial Lead (Clinical/Counselling Psychologist, Occupational Therapist or Mental Health Nurse) with the necessary skills to fill one vacancy (Full-Time, 37.5 hours per week) covering Woking WISE 1, Woking WISE 2 and Woking WISE 3 PCNs in Surrey Heartlands.
Consideration will be given to both full time and part time applicants.
We need you to help us continue to develop and shape a major new and innovative approach to providing mental health care within the community across these areas to transform how services support the health and wellbeing of people with complex mental health conditions.
We have an exciting opportunity to shape the services of the future. The General Practice Integrated Mental Health Services (GPimhs), working with a wide range of stakeholders, provides support for people with significant mental illness closer to their communities and homes. Staff from NHS, social care and the voluntary sector work closely with GPs to improve local services for thousands of people.
Mental health specialist providers Surrey and Borders Partnership NHS Foundation Trust and Berkshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust are early adoption sites for this transformed model of care in primary care networks. Primary Care Networks, each with a population of 30,000 – 60,000, host a team of mental health professionals including NHS, voluntary sector and social care roles. The GPimhs team offer extended appointments, plus access to therapies, physical health checks and pharmacists, all accessed via their local GP practice.
As a Clinical Lead, you will manage two to three primary care mental health teams within defined geographical locations, working closely with GP and Surrey and Borders colleagues. You will also see more complex primary care presentations, and those with serious mental illness discharged from secondary care.
The candidate must have a full and valid driving licence and access to a vehicle for work purposes due to the community element of this role.
